Research for more accurate decisions and better information

Large areas of the society are dependent on or influenced by weather and water. Increased requirements with regard to the environment and a climate in change provide new prerequisites. The SMHI research department provides tools, knowledge and decision guidance for the society. Read more about the SMHI research.

Research news from SMHI

Adaptation to a changed climate benefits the forestry sector

Knowledge of climate change affords the forestry sector an opportunity to adapt the planting of pine saplings. Climate change affects the forest’s growing conditions, but with the right knowledge and tools we can adapt the planting of new trees to both existing and future climate conditions.

A climate atlas could provide support in adapting to a climate in change in Africa

For several years, researchers from SMHI have been working with African researchers to gather knowledge on climate change in Africa. They now want to develop a climate atlas showing the regional effects of various climate scenarios as a support for important functions in society.

Research projects EU Horizon 2020

Horizon 2020 projects

Horizon 2020 is the EU program for research and innovation. SMHI is involved in several Horizon 2020 project. The projects have undergone an application process and are conducted in collaboration with other institutions and organizations.

Development of global climate models

Climate models are the tools used by researchers to investigate future developments in the climate. Researchers are now going to improve global climate models to deepen the knowledge about climate change.

Measurements improve knowledge of Europe's coastal waters

A new EU project will improve observations of the status of Europe's coastal waters, including algal blooms. Existing observation systems will be linked together and new methods will be developed. SMHI is one of 33 institutes that are collaborate in the project, which will continue for four years.

EU FP7

The 'Switch-On' project particularly successful

SMHI's project Switch-On is noted by the EU as a particularly successful project. The project uses open data to create services for water management in Europe, and it builds up a research infrastructure to promote cooperation between European researchers.

Climate Research at SMHI

Climate research at the Rossby Centre

The Rossby Centre pursues research on climate processes and the behaviour of the climate system. The principal tools are the global and regional climate models developed within the research unit.

Climate impacts – water in the future

Future climate scenarios indicate higher temperatures in Sweden, more precipitation with higher extreme intensities, and the sea level will rise. SMHI Hydrological research studies how future climate change may affect water availability and flow dynamics in the rivers.

Marine environment in changing climate

In order to compute the various possible scenarios on how the future of the Baltic Sea may develop, we use numerical models which couple the physical, chemical and biological processes in the ocean.

Air Quality and Climate Change

In a future climate the concentrations and depositions of air pollutants may change considerably - resulting in the elimination of our current view of emission reductions. At SMHI research is being carried out with the objective of increasing the knowledge of the link between Climate and Air Quality.
